Harvey, aLab/Dachshund mix, was found stray in Whittier, CA.He was hungry and exhausted and decided torestunder the rose bushes in front of a house on a quiet street.When the homeowner returned from shopping,she foundHarvey waiting for her.Hiswagging tail and soulful eyes touch her heart.She gave him water and food.Hehad nocollar or tags, so she took him to her vet and had him scanned for amicrochip.Nothing.Then she walked himaround the neighborhoodasking everyone she met if they knew who he was or where he lived.No success.Shewould have kept him at her home and continued to look for hispeople, but her own little dog took great exception toHarvey’s presence, soshe contacted SCDR and we agreed to take him into our program.
You absolutely cannotbelieve how wonderful Harvey is.Harveyhas the best of both worlds – the calm demeanor andtemperament of Lab with thesmaller stature of the Dachshund.Harveywould be perfect for condo or apartmentdwellers that fancy the Lab breed, butneed a smaller dog to comply with residential restrictions. With some training,he’d make a fabulous“therapy dog”.
